Pope Bluntly Faults Church’s Focus on Gays and Abortion

Wow! The Pope said that the the Catholic Church was "'obsessed' with preaching about abortion, gay marriage and contraception.." According to the New York Times,  the Pope was very blunt in one of his first interviews in six months. He said that the Church " should be a 'home for all' and not a 'small chapel' focused on doctrine, orthodoxy and a limited agenda of moral teachings."

One Catholic, Rev. James Martin, an editor-at-large of America, the Jesuit magazine in New York, was surprised by the Pope's comments. "He seems even more of a free-thinker than I thought — creative, experimental, willing to live on the margins, push boundaries back a little bit.”
